Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Spammers are still stupid

I’m getting hammered by a comment spammer again. It started yesterday afternoon, and according to my logs, it’s still going on this morning. The spams are coming from several different IP numbers (which all now blocked by my Spammer TarPit plugin), and the hosts appear to be different types. All of them appear to be running open HTTP proxies, and some appear to be infected with BackOrifice and/or NetBus.

Of course, none of the spams are getting in.
